[DRAFT] Incubator PMC Board Report - November 2017

John D. Ament-2
All,

Below is the current draft.  We have 7 podling reports missing/not signed
off.  Hopefully they can come soon.

Incubator PMC report for November 2017

The Apache Incubator is the entry path into the ASF for projects and
codebases wishing to become part of the Foundation's efforts.

October was a quieter month in the incubator.  We executed 4 podling
releases, had no changes in staff.  One new podling joined, and are having
graduation discussions for two podlings.  We expect Mnemonic to fully
graduate this month.

Amaterasu

Apache Amaterasu is a framework providing continuous deployment for Big
Data Pipelines.

It provides the following capabilities:

Continuous integration tools to package pipelines and run tests.
A repository to store those packaged applications: the applications
repository.
A repository to store the pipelines, and engine configuration (for
instance, the location of the Spark master, etc.): per environment - the
configuration repository.
A dashboard to monitor the pipelines.
A DSL and integration hooks allowing third parties to easily integrate.

Amaterasu has been incubating since 2017-09.

Three most important issues to address in the move towards graduation:

  1. Prepare the first release
  2. Grow up user and contributor communities
  3. Prepare documentation

Any issues that the Incubator PMC (IPMC) or ASF Board wish/need to be
aware of?

  None

How has the community developed since the last report?

  * Talks have been given in different events to promote and give
visibility to Amaterasu

Daffodil

Apache Daffodil is an implementation of the Data Format Description Language
(DFDL) used to convert between fixed format data and XML/JSON.

Daffodil has been incubating since 2017-08-27.

Three most important issues to address in the move towards graduation:

  1. Obtaining SGAs
  2. Establishing new apache-centric infrastructure
  3. Broadening base of contributors

Any issues that the Incubator PMC (IPMC) or ASF Board wish/need to be
aware of?

- Only that chasing the SGAs down is going to take some time, though
this may be typical.

How has the community developed since the last report?

- Users: No change.

- Developers/Contributors: No change.

How has the project developed since the last report?

- Completed setup of the git repo.
- Started process of transfer of existing JIRA
tickets to Apache.
- Established our contributor/branch workflow and
published to wiki.
- Submitted Tresys SGA.
- Progress is being made on obtaining organizational
SGAs from NCSA and IBM.

--------------------
Edgent

Apache Edgent is a programming SDK and micro-kernel style runtime
that can be embedded in gateways and small footprint edge devices enabling
local, real-time, analytics on the continuous streams of data coming
from equipment, vehicles, systems, appliances, devices and sensors of
all kinds (for example, Raspberry Pis or smart phones). Working in
conjunction with centralized analytic systems, Apache Edgent provides
efficient and timely analytics across the whole IoT ecosystem: from the
center to the edge.

Edgent has been incubating since 2016-02-29.

Three most important issues to address in the move towards graduation:

  1. Create and expand a diverse community of contributors and committers
     around the Edgent project.
  2. Attracting at least another independent committer/ppmc member.
  3. Finding further real world users of Edgent

Any issues that the Incubator PMC (IPMC) or ASF Board wish/need to be
aware of?

  While two contributors are still quite active working on
  the conversion to maven and towards getting out the next release,
  there has been very little other community or dev list activity.

How has the community developed since the last report?

  * Will Marshall had a meetup in San Francisco on the 20th of September
    to demonstrate an Edgent video analytics application which was
    initially presented at ApacheCon 2017 (Video Analytics at the Edge:
    Fun with Apache Edgent, OpenCV and a Raspberry Pi).
  * Christofer Dutz gave a presentation at Solutions Hamburg that
    included Apache Edgent.
  * There was one new non-committer enhancement/PR merged.
  * There was one JIRA from a new individual: asked & answered.
  * Total, we have 73 subscribers to our mailing list, an improvement
    of 3 since the last report.

How has the project developed since the last report?

  * Two contributors/committers have been very active overhauling the
    Edgent build system to Maven from Gradle on the features/maven
    branch. We are very close to merging and working on a release.
    Maven provides benefits over Gradle, including a more rigid build
    structure, the Maven package system, and ASF release process
integration.
    The work includes a variety of other cleanup / usability items,
    such as how we distribute Edgent samples and how users build them.
  * According to JIRA, 6 new issues were added to the project and
    2 issues have been resolved or closed between August 2017 and October
2017.
    11 issues are in progress as part of PR-309 (the maven work).

How would you assess the podling's maturity?

  Edgent is making slow but consistent progress towards graduation. While we
  don't yet meet the diversity requirements, we put emphasis on community
  growth through outreach which will ultimately pave the way for additional
  committers and contributors.

  Additionally, before we graduate it is important that we find users
  outside of IBM. As most Edgent committers are employed by IBM, external
  stakeholders help ensure long term contribution to the project.

     Comments:  The podling is still growing.  I don't believe things have
changed since I joined as mentor a few months ago.  To be able to graduate,
they need to have a truly viable community with actual features coming in.

IPMC/Shepherd notes:
Development and the number of developers working on the project have fallen
off. Dave Fisher.


--------------------
Guacamole

Guacamole is an enterprise-grade, protocol-agnostic, remote desktop gateway.
Combined with cloud hosting, Guacamole provides an excellent alternative to
traditional desktops. Guacamole aims to make cloud-hosted desktop access
preferable to traditional, local access.

Guacamole has been incubating since 2016-02-10.

Three most important issues to address in the move towards graduation:

  1. Reach consensus on graduation resolution DISCUSS thread (general@)
  2. Call IPMC graduation vote
  3.

Any issues that the Incubator PMC (IPMC) or ASF Board wish/need to be
aware of?

  None.

How has the community developed since the last report?

  The community has discussed, voted upon, and approved a resolution to
  graduate to TLP. This resolution is now being discussed on the general@
  list, prior to calling the IPMC graduation vote.

  Community activity on the mailing lists continues to be productive  and
  increasing, with the user@ list now receiving an average of 201 posts per
  month.

  Overall:

          Report    |       Period       | Avg. posts (per month)

from the issues around the SGA, it appears the project is still in process
of adopting Apache infrastructure for project communication.

--------------------
Impala

Impala is a high-performance C++ and Java SQL query engine for data stored
in
Apache Hadoop-based clusters.

Impala has been incubating since 2015-12-03.

Three most important issues to address in the move towards graduation:

  Our graduation proposal is in the works.

Any issues that the Incubator PMC (IPMC) or ASF Board wish/need to be
aware of?

 No

How has the community developed since the last report?

 There have been 279 Commits:
   git log --format='%ci' | grep -cE '2017-(08|09|10)'

 62 of those commits were by non-committers:
   git log --format='%an %ci' | grep -E '2017-(08|09|10)' | tr -d '0-9\-' |
cut -d ' ' -f -2 | sort | uniq -c | sort -n

Of the 37 patch authors, 16 were not committers at the beginning of this
reporting period.

 There are three new committers members and one new PPMC member:

https://lists.apache.org/list.html?dev@...:dfr=2017-8-1|dto=2017-10-31:%22has%20invited%22

Impala has done a fourth release with a third release manager.

Impala has begun graduation procedures: we have held a community discussion
and a community vote on graduation, both unanimous. We have established our
intended PMC. Next, we will draft our charter and hold a discussion on
general@incubator.

How has the project developed since the last report?

Impala has removed the old unpartitioned hash and aggregation nodes, relics
from years ago that were kept around for backwards compatibility: the new
buffer management makes these obsolete. Code generation for decimal and
timestamp types has been added to the text scanner, increasing the
performance of some queries by up to 19%. More robust query plans in case
of data skew have made some aggregations eight times as fast. A number of
large changes are in-flight, including changes to equivalence class
computation in the planner, more decimal semantics adjustments, min-max
filters for Kudu, and multi-threaded metadata loading that increases the
performance of some metadata operations by 8x.

Joshua

Joshua is a statistical machine translation toolkit

Joshua has been incubating since 2016-02-13.

Three most important issues to address in the move towards graduation:

  1. Make another Apache Joshua incubating release (7.0.0).
  2. Identifying specific use cases that Joshua might excel at.
  3. Attracting active developers and users.

Any issues that the Incubator PMC (IPMC) or ASF Board wish/need to be
aware of?

  None

How has the community developed since the last report?

The community mailing lists continue to see a few new users
requiring assistance with using the project.
Questions have been answered in reasonable time. Community
building continues to be the biggest challenge for Joshua right
now.

How has the project developed since the last report?

The PPMC is actively working towards a 7.0.0 release
candidate which will essentially be a re-modularization of
the Joshua source code for distribution and hopefully
improved consumption as a dependency within other projects.
We have seen a few pull requests logged specifically addressing
source code formatting, this is a positive.

PPMC and Mentors should handle this regularly. I've sent a note to private.
Let's see when it is moderated.

Slider

Slider is a collection of tools and technologies to package, deploy, and
manage long running applications on Apache Hadoop YARN clusters.

Slider has been incubating since 2014-04-29.

Three most important issues to address in the move towards graduation:

  1. Apache Slider community/PPMC has voted to move portions of Slider into
     Apache Hadoop YARN as modules. It is possible that the remaining pieces
     will be moved at a later point in time or become obsolete or evolve to
     work closely with YARN. A vote was initiated in the Apache Hadoop
     community to merge all Slider specific changes (now referred to as YARN
     Services) from a branch to trunk. Expectation is to make YARN Services
     an integral part of Apache Hadoop 3.x release. Few issues were raised
     on the changes in the branch, but all have been addressed and a new
     vote was initiated on Oct 30, 2017.

  2. Getting more external users

  3. Growth of a diverse set of developers/committers/PMC members

Any issues that the Incubator PMC (IPMC) or ASF Board wish/need to be aware
of?

  No.

How has the community developed since the last report?

  Mailing list activity has been lower due to the bulk of the development
  moving to an Apache Hadoop branch. Questions on usage and issues
  encountered by end users keep coming at regular intervals, keeping the DL
  somewhat active.

How has the project developed since the last report?

  Work continues in parallel on the Apache Hadoop yarn-native-services
  branch and on the Slider podling. The bulk of the work has been in
  yarn-native-services. However, quite of few Fortify identified issues,
  a new feature for Percentage based Health Monitor support (SLIDER-1246)
and
  a few Slider patches (related to critical issues or agent-only issues)
have
  been committed to the Slider podling, since the last report.

How would you assess the podling's maturity?

Tamaya

Tamaya is a highly flexible configuration solution based on an modular,
extensible and injectable key/value based design, which should provide a
minimal but extendible modern and functional API leveraging SE, ME and EE
environments.

Tamaya has been incubating since 2014-11-14.

Three most important issues to address in the move towards graduation:

  1. Announce release 0.3 properly
  2. Prepare release 0.4 (end of November)
  3. Grow community and get more active developers as a TLP

Any issues that the Incubator PMC (IPMC) or ASF Board wish/need to be
aware of?

We'd like to graduate after 0.4 is out, maybe Q1-2018.

How has the community developed since the last report?

A lot of discussion/bugreport/fixing concerning the upcoming OSGi features
on the mailing list.
Unfortunately not yet any new committers.
Members of the project have joined the official Configuration JSR
(Anatole/John)


How has the project developed since the last report?

We've introduced new features such as OSGi support and full Java8
compatibility while raising test and mutation test coverage.
Apart from that the upcoming 0.4-SNAPSHOT has Microprofile API support.

Re: [DRAFT] Incubator PMC Board Report - November 2017

John D. Ament-2
Hi,

Still missing sign off from: Guacamole and Ratis.  Please get these in
ASAP, to avoid being marked monthly (especially concerning for Guacamole
who's possibly graduating this month).

The following reports have not been filed, at this point I am assuming they
will be missed and roll over: iota (likely to retire), Milagro, Myriad
(also likely to retire).

John

>>
>>  While two contributors are still quite active working on

>>
>> How has the community developed since the last report?
>>
>>  * Will Marshall had a meetup in San Francisco on the 20th of September
>>    to demonstrate an Edgent video analytics application which was
>>    initially presented at ApacheCon 2017 (Video Analytics at the Edge:
>>    Fun with Apache Edgent, OpenCV and a Raspberry Pi).
>>  * Christofer Dutz gave a presentation at Solutions Hamburg that
>>    included Apache Edgent.
>>  * There was one new non-committer enhancement/PR merged.
>>  * There was one JIRA from a new individual: asked & answered.
>>  * Total, we have 73 subscribers to our mailing list, an improvement
>>    of 3 since the last report.
>>
>> How has the project developed since the last report?
>>
>>  * Two contributors/committers have been very active overhauling the
>>    Edgent build system to Maven from Gradle on the features/maven
>>    branch. We are very close to merging and working on a release.
>>    Maven provides benefits over Gradle, including a more rigid build
>>    structure, the Maven package system, and ASF release process
>> integration.
>>    The work includes a variety of other cleanup / usability items,
>>    such as how we distribute Edgent samples and how users build them.
>>  * According to JIRA, 6 new issues were added to the project and
>>    2 issues have been resolved or closed between August 2017 and October
>> 2017.
>>    11 issues are in progress as part of PR-309 (the maven work).
>>
>> How would you assess the podling's maturity?
>>
>>  Edgent is making slow but consistent progress towards graduation. While
>> we
>>  don't yet meet the diversity requirements, we put emphasis on community
>>  growth through outreach which will ultimately pave the way for additional
>>  committers and contributors.
>>
>>  Additionally, before we graduate it is important that we find users
>>  outside of IBM. As most Edgent committers are employed by IBM, external
>>  stakeholders help ensure long term contribution to the project.

>>
>> Joshua is a statistical machine translation toolkit
>>
>> Joshua has been incubating since 2016-02-13.
>>
>> Three most important issues to address in the move towards graduation:
>>
>>  1. Make another Apache Joshua incubating release (7.0.0).
>>  2. Identifying specific use cases that Joshua might excel at.
>>  3. Attracting active developers and users.
>>
>> Any issues that the Incubator PMC (IPMC) or ASF Board wish/need to be
>> aware of?
>>
>>  None
>>
>> How has the community developed since the last report?
>>
>> The community mailing lists continue to see a few new users
>> requiring assistance with using the project.
>> Questions have been answered in reasonable time. Community
>> building continues to be the biggest challenge for Joshua right
>> now.
>>
>> How has the project developed since the last report?
>>
>> The PPMC is actively working towards a 7.0.0 release
>> candidate which will essentially be a re-modularization of
>> the Joshua source code for distribution and hopefully
>> improved consumption as a dependency within other projects.
>> We have seen a few pull requests logged specifically addressing
>> source code formatting, this is a positive.

>>     will be moved at a later point in time or become obsolete or evolve to
>>     work closely with YARN. A vote was initiated in the Apache Hadoop
>>     community to merge all Slider specific changes (now referred to as
>> YARN
>>     Services) from a branch to trunk. Expectation is to make YARN Services
>>     an integral part of Apache Hadoop 3.x release. Few issues were raised
>>     on the changes in the branch, but all have been addressed and a new
>>     vote was initiated on Oct 30, 2017.

>>  2. Getting more external users

>> How has the community developed since the last report?

>>  Mailing list activity has been lower due to the bulk of the development

>> How has the project developed since the last report?
>>
>>  Work continues in parallel on the Apache Hadoop yarn-native-services
>>  branch and on the Slider podling. The bulk of the work has been in
>>  yarn-native-services. However, quite of few Fortify identified issues,
>>  a new feature for Percentage based Health Monitor support (SLIDER-1246)
>> and
